What's this pug thinking? That's quite a look Otis is giving the camera.

Patch readers, you're up!

We need your wit, creativity and animal psychic abilities to craft the perfect caption for the next edition of our pet photo caption challenge! 

What's this pug Otis thinking, as he puts on quite a mug for the camera?

The author of the winning caption and pet owner will receive a Patch-branded version of the photo, with the caption inserted. 

Congratulations to last week's winner, David Oliver Mieras, with the winning caption to "Jack Russell Stuck Like Glue to Bigger Buddy:"

Wait! The cat's this way!
